Interiors // 3 Home Decor ‘musts’ that always get overlooked

We’ve lived in East Yorkshire for two and a half years now, and we’re still working on elements of the house. It was very ‘granny chic’ when we first moved it; a lot of wallpaper was stripped, carpets replaced, and dark, light-stealing picture rails removed. I was almost eight months pregnant with H-Bear at the time, and had planned to have a home birth, so I was very keen to get lots finished in time for his birth. Which, consequently, meant that many things were  ...

Interiors // Uncommon Goods Wishlist

I’ve really grown to love our house. It’s a space that completely works for us – everything flows well, and all the rooms are decent sizes for our ever-growing family.

Is it any wonder our bedroom never features on my Instagram  ...

Interiors // My Rug Store Wish List

Since we bought our house last year I have developed a little bit of an obsession for all things rug.

I also have a penchant for walking barefoot on new rugs. Especially scrumptiously soft, fluffy ones… And I rather prefer sitting on the floor, as opposed to a sofa, which harks back to my  ...

Review // Making a house a home with PhotoBox

When we completed on our house last April I was almost 8 months pregnant and very eager to get nesting! We had quite the redecorating task ahead of us, and some of you may remember seeing photos of me up step ladders methodically stripping wallpaper! Well, we got the house into a liveable state, and then H-Bear arrived, and since then life has been a sleep deprived haze… It’s only now that we’re starting to make the house a home, so when the lovely folk at Photobox got in  ...
